This course is aimed at raising an awareness of the whole chain of production from farm to cup. Coffee consumers have become more aware of coffee-farming practices, but milk production has remained, for many of us, a subject about which we know little. The popularity of latte art and the widespread love of milk-based coffee tells us at Barista Hustle — and as an industry — that we need to develop a respectful understanding of milk production.
Chapter 1 lays the framework for an holistic understanding of all the ingredients a barista works with. We explore the practice of dairy farming and dairy processing.
